Court Places Injunction on Gazetting of Peter Amewu as Hohoe MP


A Ho High Court presided over by Justice George Buadi has granted an interim injunction which restrains the Electoral Commission from gazetting John Peter Amewu as MP for Hohoe in the Volta Region.

The injunction was granted today, December 23, 2020 after an ex parte application was presented before the court by the lawyer of some residents who claimed to be from the Hohoe Constituency.

Lawyer of the applicants, Tsatsu Tsikata who argued for the ex parte motion said the injunction was necessary because his clients who hail from towns within the Hohoe constituency were prevented from voting in the parliamentary elections that saw John Peter Amewu elected as Member of Parliament for Hohoe.

They have brought the action for enforcement of their fundamental human rights, specifically their right to vote, the lawyer argued.
